Sophia and Olivier Martelly
Corruption Investigation Dogs First Lady
First Lady Sophia and son Olivier have been alleged to have indulged in abuse of authority, money laundering, and wasting public monies.
Marilyn Allien, Haiti Heritage Foundation Director, says Sophia and Olivier have no business administering public monies; that "it is not their role to do that." It gives the appearance of underhandedness.
Martelly himself has been vetted as uninvolved in any corruption activity. Recently he signed a new anti-corruption law that had been languishing in Parliament since 2008.
